sarah.g.vollmer: ... It's the fourth time I have real dreads and only after the first time I shaved them. Than I understood that they can be combed out!  Wink You loose some lenght of course but it's possible to save Your hair! Anyway crocheted ones are great for feel to be dreaded... And it's fun!  Grin

Thank You: Naaynaay15, kjlutz, tammilkat, Lynnz232!  Kiss

dontdresslikeapril: Yarn dreads are heavy too! But You can take them off when You are sick of it all!  Wink

grossholes: I feel so understood by You! Thank You very much! And I agree... Most of the dread extensions look too... FAKE and I didn't like to wear them. That's why I created crocheted ones!  Wink They are comfortable and funny! And they don't want to look like real ones...

peteyandrocco: No, they are crocheted and than braided onto hair. In this way they are removable and You can reuse them!  Wink

Same here!  Sadly I am a bit past the age of having truly fun hair and I'm completely incapable of braiding these into my own hair.

My daughter absolutely LOVES these!  She's only 5 so I didn't have to make too many for her thin hair.  I'll post picks when I get her hair braided up!

Babukatorium:  I've learned how to make felted dreads and I figured out how to make the crocheted ones, but I'm not sure how you created the roving dreads from the last picture.

What a fab idea! Looks like a lot of fun. If only I were younger - a lot younger.

Thanks julescat73 and HookingArt!  Wink

Granite_turtle: Just needle felted them a little bit at the ends for don't let them open... The yarn was that fantastic that I didn't want to modify it! XD Waiting for pictures!

So this was my first time and I was following instructions from the internet and working with a 5 year old so all things considered I consider it a win...

I'm working on my own crochet dreads now and I am looking forward to buying rubber bands to tie them off. Thanks for the inspiration!

Granite_turtle: I hope Your Girl is proud of Her new hair. She looks very pretty with them!  Wink (My Sister is much more older but I still have to fight with Her every time for don't moving, being patience and don't shout every 10 minutes: "It HUUURTS!"!  Angry ) You did a great job!  Kiss

Pay attention! Rubber bands can break Your hair and if You stay under the sun or use a hair dryer they can easily melt! Use textile rubber bands and post Your pictures! Good luck!  Kiss

Do you mean elastic bands? Thanks for the info on melting rubber bands. I don't want that to happen!

ok. i did it!!!! it was hard to do this to myself. i need a friend to help me, because they are not in tight like i want them to be. also my hair is short right now (about 5") so they want to fall out. also, i need a better solution for the ends, because the rubber bands continue to break and i have to redue several everyday. but all in all i'm happy with them, for a first, impatient, try  Grin
